Maybe other people will like this, but it is wayyy too sweet for me. Note that I am a sugar junkie, and I love dishes like Pad Thai and sweet-and-sour eggplant, with the gooey red coating.
I realize it's called "Sweet," and I saw the sugar in the ingredients, but whoaaaa, Nellie--I didn't expect this. It's nearly inedible to me. (I'm famished, so I'm going to pick out the shrimp and veggies and rinse them in the sink.)
The sweetness is not tempered by another flavor, such as in sweet-and-sour. Tastes like sugar water (thin sauce) with a hint of hot chilis. I see garlic slices in there but all I can taste is cloying sweetness.
Number of prawns was generous, but there is no substrate (no rice or anything), and there aren't many vegetables. I'd sacrifice a few prawns for more of a meal. So it's really not worth the $12 to me because it's not a complete meal. Too bad I have another one.
Note: The prawns are frozen raw, so be sure to cook all the way through.
